but i get an gnuplot/n not found.. why?
also something tells me that plot tail -10 will not work, i have to find another way to read all the lines except the first
And why a program is not found - not necessarily 'gnuplot' ? I.e. have you heard of 'PATH' environment variable ?
And if the above is a shell script, why do you think the commands from the shell script will be fed into 'gnuplot' ?
AFAIR 'gnuplot' can read commands from file, so shy do you need the shell script in the first place ?
